State National Employees Take Evacuees Into Their Homes
Several employees of State National Companies here have taken evacuees from Hurricane Katrina into their homes. "Our shelters are overflowing with people who have no real solutions for support," said VP Trace Ledbetter. "We will continue to do whatever we can." In just one day, the company's employees donated more than $5,500 in cash and goods, including clothes, baby food, wipes, diapers and more, which was in turn given to Mission Arlington to meet immediate needs. Separately, management offered to match the employees' donations, bringing the one day total to over $11,000. Some funds have also gone to the Salvation Army.
